    An exceptional and excellent Sauternes with freshness and voluptuousness

    As a First Classified Growth of 1855, Chateau Suduiraut is one of the iconic properties in the Sauternes appellation, in the south of the Bordeaux region.

    Exceptional wines come from exceptional terroirs. The 2017 vintage from Chateau Suduiraut confirms this proverb with the wine already displaying the personality of one of many years.

    The frost that hit at the end of April 2017 did not spare the vineyards of this estate. However, the following favorable weather allowed the vines to reach the end of the growing season. 2017 highlights the complexity of the vintage and the expertise of the estate’s technical team that paid extreme attention to the vines since ripeness was not reached at the same time in all of the plots. The renowned noble rot, "botrytis cinerea", developed late, but it produced excellent results. There were three successive passes through the vineyard during the harvest, so the berries were picked when they had the best sugar concentration and aromatic freshness.

    In a blend dominated by the opulence of the Semillon (94%) and completed with Sauvignon Blanc (6%), the Chateau Suduiraut 2017 offers harmony among the aromatic freshness, rich flavors and complex spices. The delicacy of the floral notes and the power of the fruit evolve into hazelnut and toasted almond smoothness. The palate then shows a dense texture that is subtly enhanced with sharp acidity, and then stretches to minerality on the finish. An exceptional and excellent vintage for a sweet wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2017 Suduiraut has a compelling brininess to the nose with a core of lemon curd, lime cordial and green mango with touches of musk perfume and chalk dust. The mouth is very rich and packed with decadent layers, with just enough freshness and great length.
